+dailystrips-update \- download updated dailystrips definitions
+This script is intended to use under the assumption that the development
+version of strips.def is the latest and best. Unfortunately, at the time
+of this writing (August, 2007) upstream development seems to have ceased, so
+using this script will likely result in a
+.B more out-of-date
+strips definiton than is included in the distribution.
+Due to the above, as of November 2009,
+has been neutered to exit immediately on execution, and it is expected that
+it will be removed in a future version of this package.
+script is provided to automatically retrieve updated strip definitions from
+a central server, eliminating the need to manually download and install new
+versions of the entire program.
+It is recommened that the
+script be run before each execution of the main dailystrips program. The
+script has provisions to only check for updates if the current file has
+reached a certain age, which maximizes efficiency and should allow users to
+run the update script before each execution of dailystrips without
+overtaxing the update server.
+Operation is straightforward. Simply execute
+and the updated definitions will be saved to ~/.dailystrips-updates.def,
+which will automatically be loaded by the main dailystrips program.
